For those of you like me that DON’T speak Croatian, that means…
Let my next great adventure begin!
I have been talking about it for awhile now, but I have made the final decision today to move to Split, Croatia at the end of May this year. I put the first step of my plan into action by purchasing my one-way flight there from London all of about 2 hours ago.
Ever since I received my confirmation email with my itinerary and boarding pass, I have just been buzzing and grinning ear to ear. (Thank you easyJet!)
It has been close to a year since I have stepped foot on a beach, let alone seen one in person, and coming from a girl who grew up in California, it feels like decades!
For those of you that don’t know much (or anything) about Croatia, let alone Split, here is the jist:
- Croatia is a Medditeranian country, surrounded by Bosnia, Serbia, Slovenia, Hungary, and across from Italy.
- Split is the second largest city in Croatia, located on the Eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea.
- It is referred to by it’s residents as ”The sportiest city in the world.”
- Funnily enough, Los Angeles is regarded as one of Split’s “sister cities.”
- From Split, there is easy access to fellow Croatian cities such as Dubrovnik, Hvar, Solta, and Brac.
- In the summer time it is bustling with travelers and backpackers from all over the world that I certainly cant wait to meet!
"Why Croatia?" you might ask…
Well the idea came about, because two of my friends from Prague will be moving there mid-May to work for another friends pub crawl that runs throughout the summer. One of them mentioned to me that they would be looking for people that have experience doing that sort of thing (which I do, from living in Prague), and it just set a plan in motion.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to live here?
Plus, my visa is close to running up in a couple months in London anyways, and I would like to try somewhere new, unknown, and exciting…
After some extensive research on flights, things to do, visa regulations, etc, I made the officially decision to take the plunge and make a move.
Headed to Split on May 28th!
I will be moving into a flat with my two friends from Prague (one’s Czech & one’s Aussie), which has already been sorted out by our future boss.
Starting work on June 1st for the pub crawl and so looking forward to it! It was really nice having a few months away from all the crazy drinking and partying, but working for a pub crawl is really one of the funnest jobs that you can have during the summer. Favorite part being that you get to meet amazing, fun, like-minded young travelers making their way through Europe. I can’t tell you how many connections I made and friends that I have around the world, just from working on the crawl in Prague last summer!
Now it is just a matter of getting in better shape and some color on my skin before I get there…I don’t think I have ever been this pale in my life.
Soooo….HERE GOES NOTHING!
Wish me luck :)
